The state of Alaska – short description:
Alaska boasts up to three million lakes, 3000 rivers, 100,000 glaciers and fifteen national parks. Here one can explore seventeen of the twenty highest mountain peaks in the USA, as well as the glaciers and fjords where a variety of wildlife species can be spotted including bears, eagles and moose to name a few.
Juneau is the capital although Anchorage is the largest city in the state, it is an important center of trade and transportation as well as a tourist destination, and nearly half of Alaska’s population lives here.
Fairbanks is the second largest city and also important for trade and transportation. Situated in the northern end of the Alaska Highway, during the summer months from May to July there are nearly 20 hours of sunlight per day, while in the summer the days only really last 4 hours with a pink-indigo hue, the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) hanging over the area even during the day.
The Denali National Park and Preserve is one of the most renowned parks in Alaska, boasting breathtaking views of the Alaska Range and Mount McKinley, the highest in North America. The island of Kodiak shelters the Kodiak National wildlife Refuge, a protected habitat for the Kodiak brown bear.
The climate in Alaska varies considerably depending on the area. In Anchorage the summers are pleasant and the winters mild, while in the interior regions the weather conditions are harsh and temperatures drop way below zero.
